Please Help me in this . i have big Problem in My exchange server . i have one server which installed on it SBS2000 with Exchange 2000 and ISA2000. and as you are a ware this SBS2000 comes with Bulit in Toll for download Emails from POP 3 Server , and this Toll called POP3 Connector. but i found that i have a Problem with it . i found this Error message in Front of me :- Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes has encountered an internal error that it could not recover from. After you close the error message dialog box, the following files are created: ? C:\Program Files\Microsoft BackOffice\Connectivity\POP3 Connector\Vmimb.txt ? C:\Program Files\Microsoft BackOffice\Connectivity\POP3 Connector\Vmimb.evt ? C:\WINNT\Drwtsn32.log i searched on the internet and i found a sloution for it . but this solution tell me the following :- ========================================CAUSE This problem may occur if the following conditions exist: ? The Microsoft Connector for POP3 is in the process of downloading a lot of messages. ? The next-scheduled connector download time occurs. The time that it takes to download the larger volume of messages is exceeding the scheduled download interval. This interval is set in the Microsoft POP3 Connector properties. This situation causes a conflict with the current download of inbound messages and the scheduled start of the connector. WORKAROUND To work around this problem, increase the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes Scheduler time. This provides a longer interval of time before the next start of the connector. The next-scheduled start of the Connector occurs later, and does not overlap the current download. 1. Start the Small Business Server (SBS) Administrator Console, and expand the Exchange node for your organization. Expand the Administrative Group, the first administrative group, and then expand the Connectors node. Right-click the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes, then click Properties. 2. On the Connect and Download tab, click the Schedule button. 3. Change the scheduled settings to increase the existing interval between each scheduled download. Zero hours and fifteen minutes are the minimum intervals for the connector. NOTE: The exact location of the Microsoft Connector for POP3 Mailboxes may vary, depending on the options you selected in the Exchange node properties, Administrative Views. --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
